James French, MD Reviews (543)

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. French is knowledgeable, great communicator. Made me feel I picked the right guy.

Breast Reduction

Dr. French and his staff are all professional, knowledgeable and caring. They explain every procedure in detail and answer all questions completely. They put patients at ease and provide follow up care with compassion and competence.

Face Lift

Answered all my questions pretty much before I needed to ask them. Asked often if there was anything else I was concerned about. Repeatedly encouraged me to call if anything else occurred to me later. Checked on mental wellbeing as I approached the surgery, ensured I had help and support setup. Talked about after procedure expectations and went over what I could do to assist my healing process. Staff was personable and caring they want you to have a good experience and address any concerns upfront if possible.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very helpful and kind. Dr. French took his time and answered all the questions I had asked.

Eyelid Surgery

Still healing. Have not seen final results. So far, I’m satisfied with my progress.

Arm Lift

With patience and thoroughness all procedures and after surgery possible occurrences were explained to me and follow-up appointments made. Pictures made and prescriptions given to me. Discussion of wearing garments or using ace bandages wraps. Complete confidence in staff. Even 2 letters, one from Dr. French about happy to hear of my decision to have the surgery. The one letter to give to my spouse, who served as a caregiver during recovery.

Treatment / Procedure

Informative. Results exactly as stated. Pre and post op great as always.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very friendly and supportive. The Dr. is very friendly and makes you feel very comfortable with everything. They have answered every question and concern I have had and I am looking forward to my procedure.

Breast Augmentation

Everything went smoothly, I had virtually NO pain after surgery, which was amazing, and I have had no complications what so ever! Couldn't be more pleased!


The patient education was terrific. I knew just what to expect. Everyone made me feel very comfortable with the consult. Some shared their own experiences with me. I felt confident I was in good hands.

Neck Lift

I loved the resukts

Treatment / Procedure

The staff always makes me feel like I am the only patient they are seeing when I come in. Everyone is warm, friendly, and patient when I go through my list of questions.

Breast Reduction

My breast reduction surgery performed by this clinic improved my quality of life. The staff was welcoming and supportive from the start and finish of my process. The first consultation is free and thorough and I made up mind from that experience that Dr. French would do my surgery if I followed through with the decision.

Mommy Makeover

Dr French is an artist and his staff were extremely competent. Sibley was amazing and top notch in all areas. The nurses and physicians were excellent in all areas. I had an excellent experience with my surgery and my outcome and would recommend Dr. French to anyone. That's good

Body Lift

Excellent surgeon and professional staff

Face Lift

This is the third procedure I've had with Dr. French and cannot imagine going to anyone else. He answered all of my questions, educated me regarding realistic outcomes and understood my philosophy of 'less is more'. Dr. French also has a terrific staff who are unfailingly encouraging and patient. Dr. French is the best! Much happier with my appearance!


Every individual in the practice was professional, courteous and kind.

Face Lift

Dr. French's work is subtle and he does not agree to procedures he believes inappropriate. No change except I look 15 years younger...

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. French and staff have always been great, informative and amazing to deal with.

Eyelid Surgery

It seems all had personal experience
